WE HAVE RESEARCHED AND TESTED HUNDREDS OF DIFFERENT NATURAL SOLUTIONS TO BALANCE HORMONES.
HERE ARE THE 9 MOST ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS TO BEAT ESTROGEN DOMINANCE AND BRING BALANCE TO YOUR HORMONE LIFE!
Estrogen Dominance is created when there is either too much estrogen. Or, there is not enough progesterone in your body.
Many health challenges facing women today can be traced to estrogen dominance. The great news it that a saliva test can easily reveal it, and there are natural ways to reverse it.
Intelligent supplementation is the key to long-term hormone health and here are the 9 essential nutrients you need.
1. Bio-identical progesterone.
As our bodies age, we just do not produce enough progesterone to keep estrogen in check.
A natural progesterone cream, which is the most convenient & effective way to increase the level of progesterone in your body.
Look for an aloe-based cream since it is the most effective.
Be sure to do a 5 panel saliva test before using a progesterone cream.
2. Soluble and insoluble fiber.
Secondly, fiber supports digestive & adrenal health. It also improves bowel function. Fiber is a huge Key!!
There are basically two kinds of fiber, insoluble and soluble fiber.
A high fiber diet helps beat estrogen dominance. Unfortunately, bowel problems like constipation means that wastes sit longer in your colon, which leads to re-absorption of xeno-estrogens from waste and greater toxic estrogen load.
In short, adding more fiber to your diet is a critical part of beating estrogen dominance naturally.
Scientists have identified indole-3-carbinol (I3C) as the active disease-fighting ingredient in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower.
I3C initiates a series of reactions in the body that culminates in the elimination of estrogen.
I3C ESSENTIALLY “VACUUMS” AWAY ESTROGEN.
However, the challenge in the real world is eating enough I3C containing vegetables. So, we have found it best to supplement with 200-400mg of I3C every day.
4. Diindolylmethane, also know as DIM.
When your body breaks down I3C, various by-products like DIM are produced. Basically, supplementing DIM gives your body even more ammunition when dealing with excess estrogen.
5. Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin.
Vitamin D is a powerful force for good in our body. Some experts now consider vitamin D a hormone based on how it functions in the body.
THE EASIEST AND MOST NATURAL WAY TO GET VITAMIN D IS FROM THE SUN.
With many people concerned about the effects of sun on the skin and the lack of sufficient sun exposure in North America, supplementing with vitamin D is imperative.
6. Vitamin C.
Adrenal glands play a pivotal role in the health of hormones and vitamin C is the best way to support them. Further, healthy adrenals support progesterone production and help the body deal with stress.
Vitamin C also reduces cellular DNA damage, supports heart health, and healthy blood vessels.There are many different sources for vitamin C, ascorbic acid being the most common.
Even though vitamin C from ascorbic acid is very effective, it can create some discomfort when taken in larger doses.
We have found that sodium ascorbate is a much more gentle form of vitamin C.
7. R-lipoic acid.
Think of R-lipoic acid as vitamin C’s best friend. R-lipoic acid helps your body absorb more of the vitamin C you take.
We believe that any vitamin C supplement should also contain its best friend, R-lipoic acid. Therefore, we get the most impact from our supplementation.
Cardiovascular health is the most important issue to a woman's health. In addition, according to the World Health Organization, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) actually increases the risk of heart disease.
L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that has a profound impact on cardiovascular health. Because, the body converts it to nitric oxide (NO).
Nitric oxide helps reduce inflammation in the body, makes blood vessels from flexible, and supports optimal blood flow through out the body.
We have also found that any Arginine supplement should also contain the co-factor, L-Citrulline, which aids in your body’s utilization of L-Arginine.
Calcium has been shown to positively impact healthy weight levels, reduce symptoms of PMS, and more. However, most calcium products are of little value because they use sources such as: calcium carbonate, dicalcium phosphate, coral calcium, or calcium citrate, which the body cannot absorb.
Plant-sourced calcium, such as that found in mineralized seaweed, combined with co-factors, magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamin D, is the only calcium we have found that the body can actually use.
Other nutrients like b-vitamins and minerals, are great ideas too. After helping thousands of women over the last 30 years, these 9 are by far the most important.
We have proven their effectiveness through thousands of saliva tests and even more healthy women.
